> DESCRIPTION

Yda & Irwin Ziment’s exhibition In Conversation is the outcome of a visual dialogue between FIG artist Yda Ziment and her physician husband, Irwin.  Stricken in recent years with Parkinson’s, Irwin has suffered the inevitable decline in his physical abilities.  In response to his diminishing ability to communicate verbally, Yda encouraged Irwin to draw and despite his difficulties he has produced a remarkable collection of drawings.  Meanwhile, Yda responded with her own works which reflect on the fear and sadness of watching her life-long love’s deterioration.  The two bodies of work come together in this powerful and poignant exhibition.
